crossfit mashup

crossfit mashup--Journey for JessiGood morning everyone!  Happy Sunday!  Let me tell you–I am sore, sore, sore.  Thanks to my crossfit session yesterday morning.

omelet us catch up

omelet us catch up--Journey for JessiI apologize for being so behind on my posts, but now that things are slowly settling into place after the move, I can go through all of my recipes and pictures and turn them over to this blog.  The last thing I did before moving back to Colorado was have brunch with a really really good friend of mine before we went our separate ways again.  He is one of those people that you can not see for months and pick right back where you left off, which is 100% our case.  He let me pick my favorite brunch place at home, La Madeleine.  That omelet was the beginning of a new obsession of mine.

egg-cellent protein source

microwaved egg whites--journey for jessiEggs.  I used to despise the taste and texture of eggs.  Slowly though, I have come to realize that the texture problem I had was because of the yolks, so I began to ditch those on most occasions, and the taste aspect? Who knew most restaurants (and sometimes my family) add milk and cheese into their scrambled eggs?  No wonder I have a negative bias towards eggs, me being lactose intolerant and what not.  No, eggs are not vegan (I do buy cage-free and free-range though), but they are packed with protein and have done me wonders this past week.
